Look Up, Look down: Mt Tinbeerwah (Wk 29)


Looking up requires the observer to be at some distance from the mountain to see it in its entirety. It gives a point of reference for anywhere you are in the locality it’s distinctive shape can be seen. Looking down from the top of mount Tinbeerwah after a delightful walk through the Aussie bush you can see a full 360 degree panoramic view of the surrounding countryside, getting a new understanding of the system and river system on which I live.

About Irene Waters 19 Writer Memoirist

I began my working career as a reluctant potato peeler whilst waiting to commence my training as a student nurse. On completion I worked mainly in intensive care/coronary care; finishing my hospital career as clinical nurse educator in intensive care. A life changing period as a resort owner/manager on the island of Tanna in Vanuatu was followed by recovery time as a farmer at Bucca Wauka. Having discovered I was no farmer and vowing never again to own an animal bigger than myself I took on the Barrington General Store. Here we also ran a five star restaurant. Working the shop of a day 7am - 6pm followed by the restaurant until late was surprisingly more stressful than Tanna. On the sale we decided to retire and renovate our house with the help of a builder friend. Now believing we knew everything about building we set to constructing our own house. Just finished a coal mine decided to set up in our backyard. Definitely time to retire we moved to Queensland. I had been writing a manuscript for some time. In the desire to complete this I enrolled in a post grad certificate in creative Industries which I completed 2013. I followed this by doing a Master of Arts by research graduating in 2017. Now I live to write and write to live.

    I h’observe too much blue in the first one – what’s with your blue kick? – I don’t remember you being an fx photog. ? Enough with the whingeing: your pic.s are great, Irene! – the way that hill sticks out is wonderful, for one doesn’t often see a little mountain all on its own …

    I’m surprised that it’s so lush there. Because you’re at the end of your summer, I would think it would look drier. Beautiful views.
